Residents of Osage Circle are fed up with their view of a naked neighbor and plan to hold a homeowners association meeting Monday.

Residents say they will meet with either Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe or a lieutenant during their meeting.

Indecent exposure laws in North Carolina allows a person to stand in front of a glass door in the nude while people walk by outside. It's been happening at the Cardinal Glen development for more than 10 years.

“We really got to get this cat out of the neighborhood because we don't know when he's going to do something else,” said neighbor Will Livingston.

People who live along the street say that because of the law they can't have their neighbor arrested. They say it's disturbing to them.

The law says that a person can only be charged with indecent exposure if the person “willfully exposes the private parts of his or her person in any public place and in the presence of any other person or persons.”

Cardinal Glen development residents say they will try to prove that their neighbor wants to be seen.

“He does it when there's females around, teenagers,” said Xavier Hodges, President of the Home Owners Association.

“We have to get the neighbors who have seen him outside of his house in the nude,” said Will Livingston. “Then I'll go to the magistrate and I think sign some kind of warrant or something for his arrest And then they'll go to court. But they have to show up to court.”

As President of the Home Owners Association at the Cardinal Glen development, Xavier Hodges is holding a meeting Monday to see how they should deal with the matter and make their view disappear.

“We are all close neighbors and we keep in touch as to what goes on in the neighborhood. This right here has to stop, it has to stop,” said Hodges.

Residents are asking anyone who may have seen the man in the nude to come forward. That way they can have enough information to file some type of legal complaint.
